    As some of you have read from other posts, I have doing lanmowing for a summer or two -max.

    The local mowing store has a Snapper push lawnmower (no bag) with mulch for $399.99. Do Snapper products have a good repuation.

    I know that it is not a pro model or anything. But would that be a tough lil lawnmower to hadle cutting for one or two seasons?

    I like the Wal mart Wizard. It's only 99 bucks with side discharge.

    I've used snapper mowers and they are heavy duty. If you are going to shell out the money go for broke and purchase one with a Honda engine and the option for a bagger. Just keep in mind you can buy 4 or 5 mowers at Sears or Walmart that will work just as well for the same price.

    I think that it would be a nice mower. I have a 48 in. commercial walk behind, and I like it. Make sure to get one with at least 6 horses.

    ...but rather a 190CC engine. I don't really know the difference, does anyone?

    The reason I am staying away from Sears and Walmart is that I need a GOOD MULCHING consumer brand machine. Mulching is my selling point.

    I have heard that Toro and Lawnboy have the best. And Snapper's is pretty good. But I don't know about the others!
